I am writing this letter of recommendation in the hope that you will consider the services of one of our former employees, Christopher Deddens.


Chris served almost six years as one of our staff announcers faithfully performing his tasks and responsibilities with enthusiasm and a great desire to produce the best possible work.


Chris voluntarily separated from full time employment with our small network of radio stations due to family issues with the understanding that we would be able to provide him with a significant amount of production work and voice tracking.  However,

our plans changed with the addition of another full-time announcer and were no longer able to provide Chris with enough production and voice tracking to warrant his continuance with our operation.


His voice quality is strong and his impeccable work ethic will serve you well. His sterling attendance record and wholehearted commitment to our radio operation made him a joy to work with and I sincerely hope that you will give him every possible employment consideration.

Executive Director

Minn-Iowa Christian Broadcasting




I am writing this letter in regards to Christopher Deddens, who I have known for approximately one year. Throughout this letter, I hope to paint a portrait of Christopher, and explain why he would be a great fit in expanding and growing your company



I have known Christopher through his tremendous success that he has accomplished over this past year as a participant in our Guides program and as an employee in our West Carmel Goodwill store. Throughout Christopher’s time with our program and company, he has demonstrated professionalism, phenomenal customer service, dependability, and a certain kind of dedication to our program and store. His ability to step up to a challenge, problem solve, consistently work towards his goals, and the ability to think of future issues has made our company and program truly value his work ethic.



Not only does Christopher have the dependability and dedication, he has the professional experience to do well, and ultimately succeed. Christopher has over 33 years of radio broadcasting experience where he has built everlasting relationships, traveled to various states, and ultimately developed into a true communications professional, which could establish him as an asset to your facility.



Not very often do you come across someone like Christopher.  His professionalism, poise, and critical thinking skills are on point when it comes to decision making. He always communicates effectively when issues arise and he’s always caring and supportive towards anyone that crosses his path. Christopher is someone that I would want on my team because of his dependability and heart.  He is someone that you can automatically feel comfortable with when discussing issues.  I have told Chris this before, he simply has “it”.  He will do well with whatever he puts his mind to and will always be reliable.  He is great to work with, great to observe, and given the opportunity, he will be a great addition to your business.



If you have any other questions regarding Christopher Deddens, please let me know.

Heart to Heart would like to take this opportunity to highly recommend Chris Deddens to you for your audio production and radio personality needs.

Chris is very conscientious about his work, always professional and punctual. He never fails to strive for top quality in his programming and has a “radio voice” that is instantly appealing to his listening audience.

We have worked with Chris on several projects over the last 6 years and have recorded our weekly radio program, “The Branson Gospel Groove with Heart to Heart” on his station. We have conducted live interviews as well as telephone interviews on the program and played music as well. Chris has also created commercials and voice overs for us in the past.

Heart to Heart has worked with Chris through Branson Radio Live also where he announces that program as well. Chris makes it easy and fun for us to do our job.

If you have a position for which you are considering Chris, we believe he would quickly become an asset to your team and hope that you will give him that chance. Thank you.

I am writing this letter of recommendation for Chris Deddens.  Chris has been with the kroger Company for 14 months and is  

definitely an asset to our Carmel, IN location.

Because of his impressive talent, I assure you that an in person interview with Chris would be most productive.

I have enthusiastically examined Chris' infectious desire to discover how his 45-year working career can soar Kroger to the 

level and beyond.

Chris has been an outstanding member of our team, and I have always been impressed by his professionalism and admirable  personal qualities.

There is no doubt in my mind that Chris would quickly become an invaluable asset for whatever team he may, or could be,  assigned to.

His media content is impeccable. His voice content is remarkable.  He has presented a sample to Eric Halvorson, of which he  

was given great praise.

In closing, no matter where Chris would land, he always gives 110% each day. With his outgoing attitude and friendly demeanor,  he always puts the customer first.  Hiring Chris will give any company an added bonus. He truly is a winner!!!
